The comment

US and European grain markets climbed on Monday on news over Black Sea escalations involving a Russian attack on export infrastructure … Chicago SRW wheat prices closed with limit-up gains, jumping 8.60%. Kansas City HRW climbed 6.77%, and Minneapolis HRS rose 5.52%. Corn prices also made substantial inroads, rising 6.36%. Soybean prices enjoyed gains of around 1.5% thanks largely to spillover strength from red-hot wheat and corn prices. The rest of the soy complex was also in the green, with soymeal prices 1.02% firmer, while soyoil climbed 3.73%. In Europe wheat prices soared 7.08%, and corn closed 5.45% higher. Oilseed markets, in contrast were mixed as August rapeseed fell 3.83% as approaching to expire, while Nov rose 1.41%. Spillover support from energy prices added to tailwinds. Oil prices, indeed, climbed about 2% to a near three-month high, on tight supply, and China stimulus hopes. The Baltic Exchange’s main sea freight index in London slipped 1.12% falling to over 1-1/2 month low. On Wall Street, US stock indexes posted moderate gains, buoyed by the rally in crude oil prices. The DXI rose by +0.28% and posted a 1-1/2 week high.
